 The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, in collaboration with other UA programs and community partners, is presenting the documentary film by Nilima Abrams, titled “The Tent Village." The documentary provides a rare view of roadside dwellers n S. India filmed by their children and is an exploration of innate worth. The teenaged filmmakers provide nuanced perspectives on child marriage, caste stigma, and addiction. Though unflinchingly honest, the story is gently hopeful and cross-culturally relevant. This event is part of series of events supporting women’s empowerment and human rights.

The documentary will be shown at The Loft Cinema as part of The Loft Film Festival. Tickets are available through the Loft ticket office. The documentary includes a post-show Q&A with the filmmakers.
